Looking for Rosemarie


Ronnies is looking for information about her mother Rosemarie, who lived near Tiffany Park during the 60’s,  70’s. until her murder in 1982.  The story is not all that different then what we all have experience ourselves within our own families or of those of our friends and the pain is one that we will always carry to the end of our lives.

If you can help her out and find people who knew her mom, let  me or Ronnies know.

I’ll update this with more information as I get it.



I hope all is well.

I am writing you because I see you have so many pictures from the South Bronx mainly Fox St.

I was wondering if by any chance you knew my mother Rosemarie.

She was murdered March of 1982.

She lived on Fox St. in the building between handball courts and the school on Fox (The park’s name is Tiffany.) Her husband at the time was Julio, she also had a son by him.

Her sister Gladys died of AIDS a few years after her death.

Her brother Papo was also murdered in the late 1980’s to early 90’s

I am just trying to find out anything about my mom, people who knew her and might have a story or two to tell. I was not raised with her, she gave me to my dad when I was born. I do not have many memories with her as I saw her very rarely.

Thank you in advance for accepting my email and helping in anyway you can.

God Bless




( I asked for more information and some clarification, this is her reply.)

From what I’m told (and it’s not much) before she and my dad met she was dating Frankenstein from the Savage Skulls.

I was born in 1973 That’s when the picture of her and dad was taken that was their wedding night.

Papo’s real name was Jose not sure if he shared the same last name as my mom.

Her mother does still live there but will not tell me anything.

Gladys, her sister, was known as India and her Husband Indio.

My mom’s close friend name I believe was Raymond Rios aka T.M.

This is information that I found when my mother police report of her death was finally released to after 2 years of going back and forth with FOIL a program in NYS that releases records to family members but does block out names.

Thanks Again,
